New radiometric ages for the Fauresmith industry from Kathu Pan, southern Africa: Implications for the Earlier to Middle Stone Age transition
Abstract The Fauresmith lithic industry of South Africa has been described as transitional between the Earlier and Middle Stone Age. However, radiometric ages for this industry are inadequate. HereExpand

U-series and ESR analyses of bones and teeth relating to the human burials from Skhul.
In order to resolve long-standing issues surrounding the age of the Skhul early modern humans, new analyses have been conducted, including the dating of four well-provenanced fossils by ESR andExpand

Desert pavement-coated surfaces in extreme deserts present the longest-lived landforms on Earth
All exposed rocks on Earth’s surface experience erosion; the fastest rates are documented in rapidly uplifted monsoonal mountain ranges, and the slowest occur in extreme cold or warmExpand

Northward extent of East Asian monsoon covaries with intensity on orbital and millennial timescales
Significance The magnitude, rate, and extent of past and future East Asian monsoon (EAM) rainfall fluctuations remain unresolved. Here, we present a rainfall reconstruction based on the surface areaExpand

Sand dunes as a major proximal dust source for late Pleistocene loess in the Negev Desert, Israel
Abstract Grain size analyses of three hilltop, primary eolian loess sequences in the Negev desert, southern Israel, show a bimodal grain-size distribution at 50–60 μm and 3–8 μm. Using analyses ofExpand
